03:20 PM ET 01.28 | The San Francisco 49ers head into Super Bowl week relatively unscathed from injuries, though there's still a handful of nicked-up players to watch for. For more Super Bowl coverage, check out Niners Nation and Baltimore Beatdown Tight end Garrett Celek (foot) is listed as questionable after sitting out all three days of practice, but he's not expected to miss the game. Linebacker Ahmad Brooks (shoulder, finger) is listed as probable. Brooks was mostly limited to exercise bike duty, but he got in a limited practice Friday and should be fine for the game. Likewise, running back Frank Gore (ankle, shoulder) is also expected to suit up and defensive tackle Justin Smith seems to be over his elbow injury that cost him a game in the regular season.

Biggest game of their careers. Of course they will play.

Why wouldn't they play?


It's not like they had to play in the Pro Bowl.
